Are you a patient of Barbara Jemec, MD, FRCS(Plast)?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
From the first consultation to the final discharge appointment, Barbara was the medical epitome of professionalism and, more importantly, warmth. She listens, she understands, and she advises. If she feels something isn't right for you, medically, she'll tell you. That honesty is of paramount importance to me and that is why I have recommended Barbara to a number of close friends - and why I will continue to do so. Her expertise and experience is unrivalled but so is her bedside manner and professionalism. These are qualities you very rarely find all in one place.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
Barbara is, quite simply, the consummate professional. She doesn't blind you with medical science. Instead, she walks you through your procedure step-by-step, answers all questions thoroughly and spends time to ensure you are completely clear and well-prepped on all aspects of the procedure. In short, I couldn't speak more highly of Barbara. In fact, I've since recommended her to friends, family and clients alike - something I wouldn't do lightheartedly.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I was very happy with my surgeon. I made a point of choosing a female surgeon as I think breasts are a woman's business. Ms Jemec also cares about giving something back to society (she trains doctors in Africa, for instance) which, to me, was an added bonus as I value an altruistic attitude. I found Ms Jemec to be competent and professional, but also approachable and likeable. In the initial consultation she carefully explained the procedure to me, including potential complications and details I had not known or considered before (for instance that there are limits to how much tissue can be removed from the breasts if the nipples are to be preserved). All my questions were answered and all my concerns addressed. On the day of the procedure I could therefore go to the operating theatre relatively calmly in the confidence that she and her team were going to do excellent work, which they did. Aftercare and follow-up were also excellent; the pain and the bruising was all taken good care of. It was a pleasure being treated by a surgeon dedicated to and passionate about her work. I felt in good hands throughout.

Ms Jemec has been amazing throughout, she was very clear about what to expect from the beginning and carefully explained all the pros and cons of going ahead with it. During the process and after, she has remained in contact and I have felt able to contact her with any worry at any time. While I was healing I would email her with photos to ask if various things were normal. She was very patient with me and always replied to my emails making me feel supported and calmer. Looking back at the whole experience, I'm so happy that it was with Ms Jemec. She's amazing, she has changed my life.
5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment
Ms Barbara Jemec is a very capable and proficient plastic surgeon. Her strengths not only lie within her experience but also how comfortable a nervous patient is made to feel during the procedure. As my scar was on my face, I was very concerned but all my doubts were clarified during the consultation, prior to the surgery. I would like to add that Ms Jemec is very approachable, patient and...

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal
Miss Jemec removed a myxoid cyst from the middle finger of my left hand. The nail was deformed, had turned green and was catching on everything, which was very irritating. During the procedure, Miss Jemec explained what she was doing and was very relaxed and often amusing. I experienced very little discomfort. Six months later, the nail had grown back fully. Miss Jemec was recommended to me...
5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal
Miss Jemec is a highly experienced professional who instils total confidence. Her empathy and understanding are exceptional as was her care and that of her office. This was a worrying time but made less so by Miss Jemec. She took the time to explain the different options available and the pros and cons of each. We agreed on a skin flap following the procedure which is now healing really...

Barbara Jemec is a caring , positive and excellent surgeon.
I try to do my best for my patients, listening to them and really getting them that personal service which any surgery deserves. It is essential for me that my patients are informed fully, and have had time to ask all the questions they want, before the surgery.
